I wouldn't get them if I was you. Your calves are 4 inches smaller than most peoples quads. My brother has 22 inch calves. It's crazy. I would however get the 2.0 sweat knickers. Sweat knickers are my 2nd best seller. They are fun, comfortable, and you can wear them almost anywhere.

Are there going to be other sweat knickers in cheaper fabrics (like the salt n pepper)? I'd like to give them a try but they are a pretty big investment this year.

Pretty much every decision one makes, provided they care about the consequences, is an explicit (or sometimes implicit) consideration of tradeoffs right?


WvG can choose to implement the subscription model and not care about the group of people who will be upset and whine. It's also very possible that those people who are upset would stop supporting the brand financially and otherwise. I don't have the numbers or the data to say how big that group is so my intent was just to point out the possibility. 


I mean look at the recent Adobe Photoshop fiasco. There are a substantial amount of people who are unhappy and unwilling to buy into the subscription based model that Adobe is forcing on them. Even when Adobe offered the subscription at a significant discount, just on the basis of principle alone many people refuse to sign up.


And for all the awesomeness that WvG is, I think it's safe to say that photoshop has a more dominant position in the market than WvG does. So Adobe has the luxury of the, "well you can like it or you can not like it but we're the only game in town" viewpoint that WvG may not have. 


Besides, if I were Mauro I would feel much better about myself and my own work if people bought my clothes because my clothes are awesome vs, people bought my clothes cause it's December and if they don't spend their store credit they lose it so better find something. 


I'm not up on the Adobe issue, but take your point. I guess my real point was that to the extent I'm a single data point, I would have no problem with a rewards program that worked as described. It's a proposition that either has value for me or doesn't. There are enough things in life to take personally that I don't waste that energy on shopping.

I am sure I will offer another fabric like the cherry slush and salt-n-peepa. The 2.0 has more work involved so the cost is more.

Thanks for the honest reply!

 

Man, I'd get the sweat knickers if I didn't already have a similar pair. I was really looking for a full length high-quality sweatpant I could wear around the house in the winter months. My legs would get cold with the knickers!

Do the henley's soften up over washes/time? From what i can tell just by wearing it, it will last quite a while, but it's a little rough. I guess I'm comparing it to jersey, so it's not exactly a fair comparison though.

just wanted to chime in about the 2.0 lounge pants. I honestly would never have given them a try at first glance, as I too was looking for a pant like the original lounge pant. Unfortunately, the original broke down pretty quickly and Mauro offered me credit for my next purchase and I made the plunge on the lounge pant 2.0. It took me a while to get used to it.. At first I treated it like sweat pants and only wore them indoors, but they really grew on me and with the right belt and shoes work amazing on any dressier outfit. It may not be work appropriate if you're in a suit attire workplace, but on nights out with friends I always get compliments and never look out of place, only more fashionable.

Great to hear. I think you brought up a good point. The 2.0 is a fast pant for the my customer but once they wear it and keep wearing it grows on them until they actually leave the house and then they become the brightest peacock at the party, and that feels good!
Chicks love the 2.0 this is a fact.



Let me take some time to express my loathing for UPS. The weather couldn't be the reason for not delivering my lab dips yesterday like tracking said. These people just suck. It's really that simple.
I am in NYC , Monday and Tuesday so when I get home I better have a package waiting for me. How unprofessional.

left mauro's place after lunch and went straight to union market in dc and two diff peeps gave me props for my "sick sweat" pants lol

I just got back from shooting skeet. I wore the new chinos, thermal, and military green turtleneck. It was a good morning!
post #12403 of 15119
Will you put up the damn chinos already? Really need a pair haha
post #12404 of 15119

The s/s bloodline chinos you previewed a little while back, you mentioned they were 8oz. Is it possible to wear that weight during mild Canadian winters?

Or is it like wearing nothing at all?


post #12405 of 15119
Any details on the new chinos in terms of fit, colors, etc.? I'm assuming they'll have slash back pockets and not patch?
